Bumping this back from the dead, as there’s finally a Blu Ray!

Woooooooooow. Never saw this happening. Thanks for the update. I’m guessing there’s not much chance they will include the extra scenes, but I’ll be happy to finally have this in HD. Thanks for the info, SilverWook.

A “top man” around here is bidding on it. 😃

What I’m puzzling over it that’s it’s 3/4 inch U Matic tapes. I would think a major cable network would broadcast using one inch VTR’s or whatever the standard was in the early 80’s. Was this something HBO sent around as a promo or for some other purpose?

U Matic was more a mainstay of small tv stations and local cable companies. The college tv station I once slaved at carried the programming of a network called NCTV, but we didn’t get their satellite feed, (for reasons I’ve long forgotten) so they sent us a box of U Matic tapes for each month’s programming. They had to be sent back the next month of course.

In retrospect, I should have dubbed some of those tapes off when nobody was around. 😉

I really want to know if the seller has other HBO tapes.

Good to know, I’ll stay out of the way of the bidding. I really hope this makes it into the community.

Couldn’t really find anything definitive anywhere on this, so I will ask here:

I am a mac user. I have a Mac pro 1,1 running OS 10.7.5

I just installed an internal Blu-ray burner into said Mac Pro.

What is the best way to burn this and other MKV files to blu-ray disc properly and, preferably, without any reencoding?

I see Leawo has what is supposedly decent software. is that the way to go or is there something better?

I was also referred to TS Muxer, but I can’t seem to get that to open on my Mac without crashing.

I have no intention of buying a PC, nor do I want to put these on USB drives or stream.

Any suggestions?

Feel free to PM Me to avoid cluttering the thread 😉

Seconding this - I have used tsMuxer in the past but I have run into a lot of problems with it. I have a copy of Toast but it does not seem to play nice with .mkv files. Does anyone have a better solution?

What specific problem did you have with tsmuxer? I’ve made BD’s with many fan release mkv’s with very few problems.

For anyone who is interested, I am slowly but surely building an isolated music track for this. I began yesterday and got up to the point where the 2005 narrative begins. It is proving to be a bit of a challenge. The Transformers theme by Lion took some time as it seems they did not have the synth section in the film mix that otherwise can be heard on the album version of the song. I finally found a good spot to make it sound as it should without being jarring. I'll keep everyone updated on my progress.

 That sounds awesome. Can't wait to hear it.

I have a copy of the Transformers: The Movie Mokushiroku videotape coming.  I already have a digital transfer of the entire video and I was planning to include some of the segments on the Blu-ray.  The question is, should I just include the segments that actually are related to the movie or the entire video?  A lot of the video pertains to the later series like The Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory.

 

Also, I have the "Toy Version" of Scramble City, which is sort of a re-telling of the OVA using toys and some stock footage from the TV series, that I was considering including in with the commercials.  I don't have a translation of the dialog, though, or even a transcript I could use to create a translation.  I'm wondering if I should just include it as a long commercial with a brief explanation or if there is some other option.  Does a translation or Japanese transcript exist?

 

Should I include bios for the principle cast, crew, and musicians?  If so, what would be the best source?

 

Ok, I could use some feedback on something, if anyone is still watching this thread.  I've done a number of small fixes to remove some of the more obvious scratches and spots that showed up on the original 1080p transfer.  There is one scene I'm not sure if I should fix, though.

 

After the back of the shuttle is blown up, there is a pan that has two vertical lines running down it.  They looked like thin film scratches at first but upon closer inspection, they are an artifact from the animation process.  Should these be removed or left in place since they were animation flaws and not actual film flaws?

 

You can see an example of what I'm referring to here:

  • I would include all of Mokushiroku. 
  • Yes, please include Toy Scramble City.
  • I never read bios on DVD/BD's any more, I just go online if i'm interested.
  • Personally, I would remove those lines. But then, I'm planning on fixing some other animation errors in Transformers The Movie too. While they may be part of the original print, they bother me

Wish i could locate a print or even cels cut from one to know what the original color looked like.  Every version on video just looks toyed with to me.  Especially the ones done in the era of digital tools.

Have not seen the blu ray so i cannot speak for it but every version either seems to be blown out in terms of color or too much dvnr.

The SONY DVD is overly bright. on both Widescreen and 4:3.

The UK ultimate edition had better balance i think but was probably the same master just color corrected.

 I have some cels. 

This project looks amazing and I'm throwing my hat in the ring to offer any assistance I can provide. I've messed around with doing some cleanup on the Bluray print and even toyed with correcting some animation errors (Unicron lapping over the foreground scenery at 1:16 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhRCGiJrOik ).

You wouldn't happen to be the fellow at TFW2005 looking for the Japanese Laserdisc audio, would you?

Hello, i was really shocked when i heard land before time was cut version then i searched if there would be a parts in internet then i found it was released atleast in finnish television and how lucky i really could be? land before time is one of my favorite movies and i live in finland and i have 3 copy of land before time first 1995 second 1998 third 2003, and actually the 1995 is uncutted with findub, not even bad quality its vhs quality watchable i would love to publish it in internet but  i need to get vhsrip to the computer and edit a heck if i wanna put the deleted scenes to the orginal film, it would be a funny cos if i put it in english version there would be parts with finnish language or i could just make subtitles to english from the parts and add to the film. now i dont have the equipments to do so, but in near future i might buy equipments to do so.

and trust me when u will see the uncut version its not a big deal  there's only few part where sharp tooth attacks and i really dont get why did they remove that scene from the movie where they meet spiky it was about 2min longer what on the cutted version and there was part's where littlefoot's mother speaks to him with ''ghostly voice'' but there was also a part where was some kinda lizard chasing them and it was not in the cutted version.. well anyway i try do the best what i can.

 You know what - If you really have that 79 minutes mysterious Finish uncut version, I hereby offer you 1000 Euros for that tape - I will then nicely digitize it in my studio and make it available digitally for all those who are desperate for it, including myself. Deal?

LOL, I'll chip in for that.

The replacement frames are layered PDF files.  I can just share them and let people do with them as they wish.  I just thought most people would rather have them in the movie instead of needing to rip the video from the blu-ray, replace the frames, and re-render the movie.

Even better. Like DJ I would much rather rip my BD and rebuild it with the fixed frames than to have to acquire a movie only BD rip.
